BorgWarner Charges Up Honda’s Engine with Turbochargers


BorgWarner Inc. BWA announced that it has supplied wastegate turbochargers for Honda’s HMC new three-cylinder 1.0-liter gasoline direct-injected engine. Initially, the engine is available only in the Civic models of Asia and Europe.

BorgWarner’s compact turbocharger upgrades engine productivity and improves its performance by reducing emissions, enabling to attain a power output of 95 kW (127 HP), along with swift engine response.

Few characteristics of BorgWarner’s B01 turbocharger include a closely-packed, robust design with less noise and vibration. The turbocharger has the capability to resist temperatures up to 950 Celsius and has rotational speeds of up to 285,000 rpm. Along with fuel efficiency, it offers good torque characteristics over the complete speed range.

Per Frederic Lissalde, president and general manager of BorgWarner Turbo Systems, the deal with Honda will help the company increase its presence in Asia and across other parts of the world. This move will also brace its position as a leading provider of turbocharging technologies.

This was intended to help meet the growing demand from the Japanese automakers.
